USD/JPY Set For Further Falls Following Break Below 102.00

David de Ferranti, Currency Analyst

Talking Points

  • USD/JPY Technical Strategy: Short Preferred
  • Prices break below 102.00 following Shooting Star pattern
  • Hammer signals some hesitation from the bears in intraday trade

USD/JPY has finally broken its narrow range between 102.00 and 102.70. The Shooting Star formation near the 102.70 mark indicated the bears had taken control of prices. The daily close below 102.00 opens up further declines to the next level of support at 101.20 as a bullish reversal signal remains missing on the daily.
